How early can I make cupcakes & frosting before serving?

by Kari

I have a party this saturday for 100 people. I am making cupcakes and frosting from scratch. I need to know how many days in advance can I make both the cupcakes and the frosting without them tasting stale or going bad? I will be frosting the cupcakes the day of the party. Please advise, I need suggestions. HELP!

From the editor:

Hi Kari,

You can make the cupcakes two days before the party and if you store them covered, they'll be fine.

Frosting is fine to make a week or so in advance.

Assembly is best the day of, if it's an event later in the day, or the night/day before.

Good luck.

Regards,
Michelle (editor)

Cupcakes in advance
by: Michelle

Do you store the cupcakes in the fridge or room temp? Also, does the same rule apply for minicupcakes regarding being able to make them 2 days in advance? Cheers!
